auto recycling

The term “auto recycling” is a bit confusing to many people, so this article will clear it all up a bit, and give you a great option if you are considering recycling your old clunker.  We are All Import Auto Parts, serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Give us a call and we’ll answer your questions about auto recycling.

What does “auto recycling” really mean?

An auto recycler is a business that acquires vehicles for recycled use as parts, scrap, or similar purposes.

 Did you know that cars are recycled more than any other product in America? Auto recycling helps the planet, as well as helps consumers.  Once a vehicle has reached the end of its usefulness a car recycler comes and buys the old junker to salvage for parts and scrap.

Where can you find auto recycling near you?

Your nearest auto recycling business is as close as your nearest salvage yards.  A salvage yard takes discarded and/or damaged vehicles, sells of usable parts to customers at a discounted price, and then recycles those parts which are not resold. The car body is compressed in a “cruncher,” and the metal is then used to create new vehicles.  Practically every part of a recycled car is reused, including the engine.

How reliable are salvaged auto parts?

This is a question we receive often at All Import Auto Parts.  All used car parts which we sell undergo testing to make sure they are functioning properly.  All used auto parts which we sell come with a 90-day warranty.  Now you might say “ninety days is not that long,” but when you consider the discount in price, it really is a great deal for those who are strapped for cash.  Plus, consider the nature of auto parts in general.

All auto parts are designed to last at least 100,000 miles. Many of the part, say body parts, will continue to function for two-or-three hundred thousand miles.  Those parts, sold at 40%-60% discounts, constitute great savings and great deals for cash-strapped car owners.

Need more assurance about salvage auto parts?

Consider this: in the United States there are approximately ten-thousand salvage yards in the United States, and those ten-thousand recycle over 25-million tons of auto materials each year.  It is a billion-dollar industry and it continues to grow, especially in a weak economy.  Do you really think the industry of salvage auto parts would be that robust if it were not a reliable alternative to purchasing new car parts?

Anyway you cut it, auto recycling is good for you, the customer, and for the environment, and as the Green Movement continues to gain in popularity, auto recycling will continue to be a viable solution for you, the consumer, and for Planet Earth.
